Attend the WWI Centennial Tribute to James Reese Europe and the Harlem Hellfighters on June 8, 8-10pm. The event is co-sponsored by the New York Jazzharmonic, the NYC Veterans Alliance, and the National WWI Centennial Commission.
In 1918, James Reese Europe took the Harlem Hellfighters' band to France as part of the Allied Expeditionary forces, introducing jazz to the continent. His military commission was the culmination of an amazing career that had already seen this American hero make huge contributions to African-American history, labor history, New York cultural history, and music history.
The New York Jazzharmonic Trad-Jazz Sextet, under the direction of bassist Ron Wasserman, will perform new arrangements of Europe's music from his pre and post-military periods, including recreating some of his important collaborations with Noble Sissle with vocalist Aubrey Barnes. Some of these numbers were recorded by the NYJ on their recent release, "Take A Bow,"
As an extra special treat, Gene Peters, noted collector of rare & historic African American artifacts, will display his special James Reese Europe Tribute Exhibit, which includes both antique musical instruments and military artifacts.
More information is available on the NY Jazzharmonic web site, www.nyjazzharmonic.org.
A few limited donated tickets will be available for veterans, reservations required.
